meanwhile, the world is crumbling. american diplomats dragged through the street of libya. pakistani libya putting bounties on american citizens' heads. here at home, the american economy is in shambling. obamanomics turned it to food stamp obama nation. war on jobs is crushing the middle class. as american cities declare bankruptcy for the first time ever. so, go ahead with "the view." go ahead with "letterman show." the clooney dinners. i understand you're eye candy. i understand you have your priorities. unfortunately, your priorities don't line up with ours. >> bob: that was very depressing. >> eric: it is depressing. >> bob: okay. >> eric: it is depressing. the man has time for the view and letterman but can't meet with netanyahu or tackle the major issues going on in america: jobs. >> bob: i would venture to say most presidents up for re-election, general assembly of the u.n. in september of election year don't have a lot of bilateral meetings -- >> dana: if you're going to
say that, why don't you check it out first. we have polls who do things like that all day. >> bob: i checked in with -- >> dana: so you can say -- >> eric: we checked with the people in the brain room and they tell us for the first time in two decades, a sitting president hasn't met bye laterally with anybody. >> bob: anybody? >> eric: yep. >> andrea: you could answer this. bush at this time in his presidency met with number of countries. >> dana: i didn't deal a lot with the u.n. except for climate change. but they said everybody should make time for whoopi. >> greg: true. possibly pay for it. unusual. all this talk about obama skipping intel briefings is a farce. "the view" is an intel briefing. i mean, think about it, he finds out how joy feels about terror threats in somalia, as well as menopause. you can't get the two anywhere else. brownie recipes.
i want him on the view. better for him to talk foreign policy with the biddies than have him talk to foreign policy leaders. my mom used to give me my toys and put me in the closet to keep me from breaking things in the living room. that's "the view." >> bob: that explains it. >> greg: i took the toys and made it to a monster and killed everybody. >> andrea: if you are a foreign leaders that the president stood in front of today and was trying to address in what he thought was a serious manner, how are you supposed to take anything he said seriously? one he won't meet with you or he'd rather meet with the ladies of the view. remember before it was leading from behind and now it's leadinleading in absentia. he is not there. >> bob: he should be damned for not meeting with the -- [over talk ] >> bob: tell you why he is on the view. he does well with single
women. not well with married women. >> greg: that is an insult because the assumption is women don't care about foreign policy. i'm sure the fans of the view think the middle east is between ohio and new york. so he has no tough questions. he just cruises right through. there is no julia in the middle east. so there is no vote there. >> andrea: think how many women are unemployed, too. they're home, don't have jobs and watch him on couch with ladies of "the view." >> bob: smart schedule. >> eric: allow me. "new york times" today, open it up to page four and the international section. great article called "while u.n. beckons clinton, obama takes in "the view"." it says the campaign advisor acknowledge in the election year, along with what you're saying, campaigning trumped meetings with world leaders saying look, this is a quote, look, if he met with one
leader, he'd have to meet with ten. anonymous white house aide. so what if he has to meet with ten? >> bob: i can tell you why. it takes time away from campaigns. >> eric: is that what you want? really? >> dana: i think it's a terrible decision. it's one they could have avoi avoided. they have no exde dexterity. of the events that happened last week, why couldn't you say actually, i'm going to meet with angela merkel who is dealing with a possible currency collapse. in trying to bail out the rest of the country in europe. it will effect us at home. i could meet with the chinese and press them on human rights. it could meet with the north african leaders to talk to them about the growing threat of al-qaeda there. then i could meet with pakistan, afghanistan, and iraqis and tell them better get your act together and get in line. that would have been a presidential thing to do. it would be different if he did something like "the view" every once in a while. he does it constantly. that's all anybody talks about. >> bob: he has had conversations with merkel
about the euro and all that. >> andrea: but it would be different if the middle east wasn't burning down right now. >> bob: it's not burning down. >> dana: if it wasn't the u.n. general assembly this week. >> andrea: who are the leaders asking for the meetings, too. they asked in egypt and he rebuffs them and they asked in israel and rebuff them. specifically asked in libya, the same thing. these are the countries that we saw the chaos and murders happen. he is saying you know what? i'm too busy for you. it doesn't make me feel good. guest if you saw this evasive amateurish response under bush, "new york times" would scream for impeachment. the media again for some reason is covering up the incompetence. i've seen better journalism in bazooka joe wrapper. >> bob: your commitment to the u.n. is really -- >> greg: that is true. good point. that is a good point. >> bob: great state. >> greg: good point. you're right. >> eric: i don't think anyone is making the point that u.n. is a great platform or there is any use for it. why not take the opportunity to meet with several world leaders at one time?
i can't get over israel. busy with things going on here. no. he came to him. why not sit down? >> bob: i think the -- [ overtalk ] it's a mistake. >> andrea: that's probably the biggest mistake. egypt and lib yeah. but he is running on foreign policy. this is supposed to be his strength. he could have used it as an opportunity to say look at how in touch i am. especially after the intelligence briefing. >> eric: why is romney letting obama run foreign policy now. why isn't he changing the debate rhetoric back to the economy? let's create outrage and say not meet with the world leaders. >> andrea: good point. it's unfortunate, when romney did come out and try to criticize the president and we know he was right in what he said. we found out two weeks later, seems like he shied away. he was right.
he should continue to hammer home the point. but the media went after him. they went after him. he was right. >> bob: your question is on point here. here is the fact that this election probably about the smallest number of people going to the polls voting on foreign policy than any i can think of in recent years. right? so to keep the ball on foreign policy keeps it off of the main issues that people will vote on. >> dana: i don't think this is about foreign policy. this is about decency and about how he has conducted himself as president. some people might like going on the show, pimp with a limp and doing letterman in the same week. honestly, bob, president of the united states, commanderer in chief does interview with pimp with a limp? then he did letterman the same week. then on "the view." forgot, sorry, right? that same day he had a big event with jay-z and beyonce with $300 bottle of champagne from the floor to the ceiling. this is more of, it's not necessarily about foreign policy. is this the kind of president that you want to have?
>> bob: he has been on letterman, kelly rippa, whoever that is. >> dana: seriously? >> eric: do me a favor. i want to run the sound bite. think of this in context of why would president obama say something so outrageous unless he wanted to keep the conversation on the middle east. on foreign policy? listen. >> i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there will be bumps in the road. in a lot of these places, the one organizing principle is islam. >> these are not bumps in the road. these are developments we don't want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east. not just be merciful or be mercy of the events of the middle east. >> eric: this drives me crazy that mitt romney bites on this stuff. if president obama said something so outrageous that people dying in middle east is a bump in the road, he knows he is waiting for the romney come pain to bite and every other media outlet to bite, too. he did and we did.
>> bob: good point. not only that, romney offers no specifics about what he'd do. easy to say we need a leader to do something about it. well, what? >> greg: the point of the bump in the road thing if anybody else said that, again, the media would have had, would have been a sharkfest. again, this is like they are -- the media making the decisions about this election. they are the most dispottic entity today. >> dana: the georgetown cocktail circumstancele in d.c. is aghast that president obama wouldn't meet with the u.n. leaders. one after another they're coming out. i want to correct something i said yesterday. i said "60 minutes" should have demanded to see president obama after the september 12 interview before it ran on "60 minutes." i'm changing my mind. obama team should have asked to go back and do an interview, because now what they did, what they've done is not knowing what happened on september 11 in libya, or knowing and covering it up, now they have a situation
where the president calls it a bump in the road. >> bob: i was thrown out of the georgetown cocktail circle. >> eric: stay on bump in the road. did he say something outrageous to keep the focus on -- >> bob: listen, we said this over and over again. the more you spend time not talking about the economy the better is it for barack obama. >> andrea: i think he had to say "bump in the road" knowing that the media wouldn't cover it. but two, saying anything else makes it clear it was a successful terrorist attack on 9/11 under his watch. he can't do that. to the point about asking him what he would do, that tough talk, i think he thinks the american people don't want to hear it. women voters don't want to hear it. they have war fatigue and they don't want to go to war. >> greg: when you throw people under the bus -- >> dana: but we are at war. that's what bothers me. women like straight talk. we can see with our own eye what is is happening. instead of saying that one word, "terror" he calls it the bump in the road. >> eric: president obama won't use the "t" word when referring to libyan embassy attack. let me give you a hand.
terror. terrorist. terrorism. later, president obama's campaign, chief campaign spokesperson stephanie cutter says women don't really care about the last four years. >> that is the other thing that you find most often with women. they're not really concerned about what is happening in the last four years. >> eric: andrea and dana may have a thing to say about that. you hear from them next on "the five." ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. monarch of marketing analysis. with the ability to improve roi through seo all by cob. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price.

cognitive dissonance was astounding. first the president came out and said that the defensive free people reflects universal value. then he says true democracy demands citizens cannot be thrown in jail for what they believe. but we arrested the guy who made the video. then he said we're committed to helping you in the fight for democracy. if you don't secure american, which you shouldn't rely on them to do, we'll leave. >> bob: what is cognitive dissonance? >> andrea: competing theories through your brain. >> dana: we went ten days to call it different things. they blame it on the video and friday the spokesperson said it's self-evident it's terrorism. today, president obama didn't call it terrorism. why is that? >> bob: i think charles krauthammer is wrong here. they want the focus on the mideast and europe. a lot of other things around the world.
